I don't know what is right but.......
In Newport RI at the maritime museum & shipworks, there are a few antique commuter yachts on display. These are 40-80' yachts that are very narrow and were very fast (at that time).
A plaque says that the yachts were nick named "cigarette" after a "lady" remarked that "they are so sleek, they resemble a cigarette" (when cigarettes were "sheek").
It also says that Don A's name for the boats was taken from that

They also plugged the beginnings of Sea-Ray and the resilient Bayliner. It had some interesting trivia in it and the insight into meg-yacht building was interesting as well...

You can probably get one for that as long as you don't want power, paint, or interior.
